Delta Toilet Reviews – Full Comparisons

Last updated: 3/23/2022

Delta Faucet was founded in 1952, when entrepreneur and owner of Masco Screw, Alex Manoogian, met an inventor with a new faucet design. The inventor had created a one-handled faucet with a ball valve that mixed hot and cold water inside the faucet.

Sensing an opportunity, Manoogian bought the invention and the patents, improved the single-handled faucet, and named it Delta due to the motion of the handle. Delta has been a fixture in our kitchens and bathrooms ever since.

Delta toilets are known for innovative technologies and reliable performance, with a range of great options in every price range. Let’s take a look at the best Delta toilets on the market today.

Delta + WaterSense

WaterSense is an EPA-approved label that indicates responsible water conservation. Delta’s WaterSense-labeled fixtures use 20% less water without impairing their feel or function.

Engineers at Delta carefully adjust water pressure, droplet size, and valve technologies to create the same functionality and user experience as higher-flow fixtures while still saving water. All Delta toilets use WaterSense to save water without compromising performance.


Despite the low consumption of water, these toilets deliver high-performance flushing. This gives it an edge over many toilet models on the market. Imagine enjoying a complete flush knowing you’re not worsening the shortage of water supply nationwide or contributing to any environmental threat! What a guilt-free advantage!

Standout Features of Delta

As with all toilet brands, they have models that boast unique offerings for the consumer. We’ve listed some of these that Delta toilets offer below.

Night Light Toilet Seat

Many people prefer a night light toilet seat to make using the bathroom at night or in the dark easier and more comfortable without lighting up the entire room. These night light seats are powered by batteries that need occasional replacing, and the light can be triggered in different ways depending on the specific seat model. Here are the most common lighting mechanisms.

Soft Close Toilet Seat

More and more households are choosing to upgrade to a soft close toilet seat, called a “slow close” or “self-closing” seat. These toilet seats have special soft-closing hinges that close the seat and lid with just a touch. Here are some of the reasons many families prefer a slow close toilet seat.

Our Top Pick

It was close, but after reviewing these Delta toilets, we’ve got to go with the Turner. These three toilets have similar qualities, but there are a few standouts that each one has. The Turner line has several core qualities to choose from: dual flush, round, elongated, etc. These options make it a win for most any situation you may find yourself in.

  1. I just replaced two delta toilets with a major company, because even though delta looks good and has a lot of features, they do not flush a big load down.
